Spirits & Ghosts

Spirits & Ghosts

out here walking the same old 
pavement i walk everyday
got my hands in pockets
i’m walking to work 
but i’m thinking of walking to you

bored stiff without you around 
to laugh with about feeling blue
in this town with nothing to prove
and nothing to lose but you
and all the things we get each other through

‘cause it’s drearier in this place without your heart
and it’s easier to hurt myself when we’re apart

just to hold you underneath the cloak 
of darkness in this fucked up joke
makes the demons all look like clowns at most
for all i’m keeping i’m keeping you close
to reach abandon is the best i hope
but if we make it we’ll make like spirits and ghosts

tooth fairy for a fang i removed
too scary for the life that i choose
but i’m happy just being me 
in the arms of a new
warm blooded mortal freak

in a perfect world we’d have our chance at the golden gates
but real love is suicide for the laureate 

just to hold you underneath the cloak 
of darkness in this fucked up joke
makes the demons all look like clowns at most
for all i’m keeping i’m keeping you close
to reach abandon is the best i hope
but if we make it we’ll make like spirits and ghosts
